i and the george are one

I am George Bailey. Beginning, middle, and ongoing. Dark and light.

everyone says what a sweet film it is, and it is ... but it's dark and brooding and it goes into the place where you just have to stop and give it all up ... all your plans ... all your dreams ... and say, Okay, uncle. that's a broken place. nobody wants to go to the desert. the bridge. the place where mr. welch breaks your jaw. you're ready to jump and be "worth more dead than alive."

and then there's an angel. a fat dumpy one. with weird underwear. who is willing to destroy itself to awaken you to wonder. to the beauty within and around you.

that's jesus.
